The SINP’s International Skilled Worker Category enables the province to nominate skilled workers with the required education, experience, and language abilities to successfully establish in Saskatchewan.
There are three sub-categories under this provincial immigration category:

International Skilled Worker – Saskatchewan Express Entry
International Skilled Worker – Occupation In-Demand
International Skilled Worker – Employment Offer

SINP In-Demand Occupation List
The SINP moved to an Expression of Interest System for its Occupation In-Demand and Express Entry sub-categories.

International Skilled Worker – Saskatchewan Express Entry

This sub-category enables the province to nominate individuals who are already in Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s (IRCC) Express Entry pool and who have the necessary education, skilled work experience, language ability, and other factors to help them settle successfully and integrate into Saskatchewan’s labour market and communities.

As candidates must be in the federal Express Entry pool, all candidates must be eligible for one of the three federal economic immigration programs:

Federal Skilled Worker
Federal Skilled Trades
Canadian Experience Class
